Overview: Family Feud is a fun game show, but all bets are off when you’re in the midst of a real-life family feud.  Healthcare professionals have a front-row seat to these conflicts as family members battle it out over healthcare decisions and property.  Our knowledgeable presenters created this course to help families avoid these common pitfalls.  The course will help attendees understand the purposes and practical applications of using an Advance Directive for Healthcare to appoint an Agent to make healthcare decisions for the Principal.  This course will also educate participants on the use of a Durable Financial Power of Attorney to appoint an Agent to make financial decisions for the Principal.  Finally, the session will cover common family conflicts and how they can be avoided or minimized with a good, basic estate plan.
